Landwehr, Low Countries, 680 (for the identical Brussels Foppens edition of 1683). Praz II, p.168-69. First of the Brussels Foppens editions of Veen's enduringly popular "Emblems from Horace" (principally from the Odes and Satires), a classic of the emblematic literature, originally published, in Antwerp, in 1607, then reprinted in numerous editions with polyglot text, ensuring it a Europe-wide readership. Van Veen was among the most important Dutch emblematists of the 17th-century, as well as Antwerp's leading artist and dean of the painters' guild of St. Luke. Peter Paul Rubens entered his studio, in 1594 or 1595, as an apprentice, and Veen's role as a classically educated humanist artist (a pictor doctus) influenced Rubens deeply. N. B.

This means that the text of 1682 often differs slightly from the separate first editions and the collected edition of 1674....Despite this, it is the text that has most often served as a source for the numerous editions published right up to the present time" (J.

Bossuet en fit un livre, celui-ci et le pasteur ne tarda pas à lui répondre. Quand à Marie de Duras, elle abjura sa foi et se convertit à l'église catholique.

        [John Sturges in Turkish costume with turban and gold-trimmed coat].Peterborough, 1739. Pastel on paper, mounted on canvas (41 x 30.5 cm), stretched over (original?) wooden board.

      Jeffares, "John Saunders 1682-p. 1758", in: Dictionary of pastellists before 1800 (online ed.). A pastel portrait drawn by the prolific itinerant portraitist John Saunders (1682-ca.1758) at Peterborough in September 1739. Saunders is recorded as active in East Anglia, the Midlands and elsewhere in the mid-18th century. The sitter John Sturges appears in Turkish costume, wearing a white turban with blue feather and a coat with gold trimmings and a fur collar. Saunders probably based it on a 1733 mezzotint drawn and engraved by Francis Kyte (d. 1744) after a painting (or the ink-wash drawing noted below?) by John Vanderbank (1694-1739). The pastel is of interest as an example of mid-18th century depiction of Turkish costume.With a paper label on the back with a manuscript note repeating information from the autograph pencil inscription by Saunders on the front, top right: "Saunders pinxit after Mr. J[oh]n Vanderbank Peterborough Sept. anno d. 1739". Two negligible scratches to surface, otherwise in good condition.

        Acta Eruditorum, volumes 1-12. Including the "Nova methodus pro maximis et minimis, itemque tangentibus, quae nec fractas nec irrationales quantitates moratur et singulare pro illis calculi genus" and "De Geometria recondita et Analysi Indivisibilium atque infinitorum" [Leibniz].

      Lipsiae [Leipzig], J. Gross & J. F. Gleditsch, 1682-1692. Twelve volumes in seven. 4to (20.0 x 16.0 cm). Over 7,150 pp., 162 (of 164) engraved plates of which many are large, folded, numerous text engravings. Original half vellum over speckled boards (1684), or full vellum (all other volumes). Near uniform script title on the spines. Edges red.l The Acta Eruditorum (Reports of scholars) was the first scientific journal of the German world. Arguably the most important scientific journal of its time, with all the major discoveries in physics, chemistry, mathematics, astronomy, biology medicine and history, it was widely read throughout the scientific world, being written in Latin. The Acta eruditorum was founded in Leipzig in 1682 (the present set thus is the rare start, including the first volume). Founders and first editors were Otto Mencke, and Gottfried Leibniz. Like the English 'Philosophical Transactions' and the French 'Journal des Savants', the 'Acta Eruditorum' contained excerpts from new writings (often letters, circulating among scientists), reviews, and original contributions. Some of the foremost scientists of their time made regular contributions. In particular Leibniz, and Jakob and Johan Bernoulli, published their important mathematical contributions in here. Leibniz published 36 articles in these volumes of the Acta Eruditorum, perhaps the most important being his work on integral calculus "De Geometria recondita et Analysi Indivisibilium atque infinitorum,.." in 1686, described in more detail below. The 1684 volume contains Leibniz's famous article on differential calculus in an exceedingly rare, unrecorded state. Dibner: "First printing of this epochal work. (...) Fifteen years after Newton's first work in fluxions and nine after his own independent discovery, Leibnitz published the above, his first announcement of the differential calculus". It is now known that four distinct issues exist, and this issue was unrecorded until recent. In the Norman copy, page 467 is in an uncorrected setting (known as the first state), with quite a few printing errors in the mathematical formula. In the copy described in Dibner's "Heralds of Science" (previously recognized as a first issue), the page is entirely reset, with corrections, but was recorded as the second 'state' or 'issue'. Our copy is similar to the Norman copy, with page 467 in an uncorrected state and can therefore not be a late issue. Interestingly, in our copy the plate next to page 467 differs from both Norman and Dibner: the letters "M. Oct" are printed at the top of the sheet underneath the plate number. It is still unclear which one is the true first. It is, however, certainly possible that this is the true first issue, we can think of little reason to add "M. Oct" to the plate in a later stadium. All plates in the 1684 volume have the month added, no other copies with this feature have been found. The 1684 volume in a very good copy in unusually crisp and clean condition, and in an attractive contemporary binding. In volume 5 (1686) Leibniz introduces his important integral calculus in “De geometria recondita et analysis indivisibilium atque infinitorum”. Apart from these most famous articles by Leibniz, there are dozens of other articles by Leibniz and also by other famous scientists like the Bernoullis and Huygens. The articles and plates in this set illustrate the progress of science in many fields of knowledge: not only mathematics, but also human anatomy, natural history, alchemistry, astronomy, botany, mining, and archaeology, to name just a few. Of particular interest is the first description of a steam engine, by the French mathematician and inventor, Denis Papin (1647-1712) in the 1690 volume (pp. 410-41, and a plate). Two plates, 1688, plate X (to anothe Papin paper), and 1689 plate XV (to Valvasor's publication on the Cerkniško jezero lake) lacking. Old library stamp on verso of title pages, removed paste on front pastedown. Some light uniform age toning as usual for this sort of paper and a few pages browned. In the 1686 volume the September issue ha a red wine stain covering various parts of text, but not effecting readability. The fine plate of Saturn and its moons is unaffected. A paper repair with loss of a few letters in the 1686 volume, pp. 325-326 (review of a German language thesis). The years 1692-1693 without preliminary (dedication) pages, most probably not issued. The years 1682-1683, 1686-1687, 1688-1699, 1690-1691, and 1692-1693 bound paired; 1684, and 1685 bound separately. All volumes with an old library stamp on the verso of the title pages. Overall this is a very good set in unusually crisp and clean condition and in attractive original bindings. Norman 1326; Dibner, Heralds of science 109; Ravier, Biblio. de Leibnitz, 84-96, 101-104 and 195-214; PMM, 160.

        Emblemata Amatoria. Emblemes d'Amour en Quatre Langue

      London: "Chez L'Amoureaux" [circa 1682]. 8vo (140 x 95 mm). Engraved throughout. Engraved title, sonnet in French, frontispiece, sonnet in Dutch, 44 engraved plates by Jan van Vianen, each facing text in Latin, Italian, French and Dutch, each printed on one side only. Early 18th-century vellum. Provenance: C.J.M. Kauscol (inscription on flyleaf); William Charles Smith (bookplate, 1882 gift inscription from "F.R.S."). Although the imprint is given as London (Londre), this edition appears to predate that of Ayres of 1683, as Landwehr claims. The engravings are much more finely executed, with greater detail. At least five editions were issued between 1683 and 1714 in London by Philip Ayres. These were based on the love emblems of Crispyn de Passe, Otto Vaenius, Heinsius, and Thronus Cupidinus. The Dutch artist Jan van Vianen went to England in his youth and, according to Praz, reworked his plates (in the reverse) from the originals, adding better perspective than in the originals. Landwehr, Emblem and fable books, 216; Praz, pp. 127-131 & 323; De Vries, Emblemata 232 & p. 43. Plate 20 and text 21 mounted back-to-back, some pale browning, vellum somewhat soiled.

        Specimen medicinae sinicae...

      Frankfurt: Johann Zubrodt, 1682. Hardcover. Very Good. 4to [21.9 x 16.4 cm]. (2) ff., 30 ff. engraved plates, 48 pp., 99 pp, (9) pp. tables, 54 pp, (1) f. blank, 16 pp, with engraved device on title page and numerous woodcuts in the text. [With:] MERBITZ, Johannes Valentin. De varietate faciei humanae, Discursus Physicus. Unusual sammelband of two rare first edition 17th-century medical works: Andreas de Cleyer's Specimen medicinae sinicae, the first and only edition of the first illustrated book on Chinese medicine published in the West, and Johannes Valentin Merbitz's De varietate faciei humanae, the first edition of a curious work relating to physiognomy and the ars combinatoria. Cleyer's work - illustrated with 30 full-page engravings - was the first European book on Chinese medicine to attract significant attention, and the first book to acquaint Europeans with Chinese medical charts. Cleyer's text included a thorough discussion of Chinese theories of acupuncture. The book also contains the first acupuncture charts published in the West. It is the second European book on Chinese medicine, preceded only by a brief, un-illustrated anonymous tract (1671) containing a short summary of Chinese medical principles. According to Cordier, the Jesuit Michel Boym was the author of this work and that his name was removed from the original manuscript by the Dutch who conveyed it to Europe because of a long-standing antipathy for the Jesuits. Cleyer, physician for the Dutch West India Company, apparently added material translated from the Chinese to Boym's original text and edited the entire volume. A year after the publication of this work, Cleyer was in Tokyo (Edo) in the capacity of Dutch ambassador and worked in Nagasaki for several years as chief of the Dutch trade mission. The second work in the volume is the scarce first edition of a curious work by Johannes Valentin Merbitz relating to the human face and to combinatorics and containing numerous references to Kircher, Leibniz, Scaliger and other early writers on this branch of mathematics (see p. 33). "Merbitz' book takes features of the human face and describes them by mathematical and alphabetical schemes, constructs cipher systems, and reproduces figured poems by the medieval encyclopedist Hrabanus Maurus (780-856). Charles Babbage, 'the outstanding cryptologist of his age' (Hyman 1982, 227), owned a copy of Merbitz' book, which would have been of interest to him for its ciphers" (Hook/Norman, Origins of Cyberspace, no. 8). The work includes 8 examples of carmina figurata, printed in red and black, from the medieval encyclopedist Hrabanus Maurus (c.780-856), namely calligrams of the cross (Merbitz writes that they are taken from an "autograph" manuscript in the library of the Electors of Saxony). Although the similarity of techniques between cryptographic systems and a physiognomic 'language' has been noted before - there is at least one physiognomy title in Schuman's cryptography bibliography, Bulwer's Chirologia of 1644 -, it is interesting that Merbitz makes this unexpected analogy explicit. Born is Dresden, Merbitz (1650-1704) was educated in Leipiz, was assistant headmaster of the Creutz-Schule in Dresden, and was also tutor to the elector prince. He is said to have constructed an automaton of a talking head, which, being questioned in Hebrew, Greek, Latin, French and an assortment of other languages, was able to answer correctly in the same language. At the time of his death he was working on a pair of heads that were supposed to be able to communicate with another.

        Philosophie naturelle de trois anciens philosophes renommez Artephius, Flamel, & Synesius, Traitant de l'art occulte, & de la transmutation métallique. Dernière édition. Augmentée d'un petit traité du mercure, & de la Pierre des Philosophes de G. Ripleus, nouvellement traduit en françois.

      Paris, Laurent d'Houry, 1682. ____ Rare recueil de textes alchimiques. Il contient "Le livre secret du très ancien philosophe Artephius traitant de l'art occulte et de la pierre philosophale" (p. 6-43), "Le livre des figures hieroglifiques de Nicolas Flamel." (p. 45-88), "Le vray livre de la pierre philosophale du docte Synesius" (p. 89-98) et le "Traité du mercure et de la pierre des philosophes de Georges Riplée" (p. 99-106). Illustré par une planche et 8 bois gravés dans le texte. Ces gravures montrent la fresque dite d'Abraham le Juif, que Flamel (mort vers 1418) aurait peint lui-même sur la quatrième arche du cimetière des Innocents à Paris, et qui a survécu jusqu'au XVIIIe siècle. C'est la la première illustration connue de cette fresque symbolique. Troisième édition, qui est en fait une remise en vente de la première de 1612. A cette date le livre avait paru sous le titre 'Trois Traictez de la Philosophie Naturelle'. En 1659, certains exemplaire invendus ont été remis en vente avec un nouveau titre et un colophon daté de 1659 à la page 98. En 1682, d'autres exemplaires furent remis en vente, avec un nouveau titre, une nouvelle préface, en conservant le colophon de 1659 et augmenté du dernier traité, c'est à dire des pp. 99 à 106. Pierre Arnauld, sieur de la Chevallerie est annoncé comme le traducteur de cet ouvrage. Mais pour Claude Gagnon, Arnaud de la Chevallerie serait le pseudonyme de Béroalde de Verville (1556-1626) (sous la forme de l'anagramme imparfaite "Arnauld de Cabalerie"), écrivain s'intéressant à l'alchimie et la cabale. Ferguson, Bibliotheca chemica affirme que la plupart des exemplaires qu'il a pu examiner étaient incomplets et en mauvais état. Celui-ci est complet, son dos a été très discrètement restauré. Très bel exemplaire.*-------* Third edition, but "a re-issue of that of 1659, itself a re-issue of the 1612 edition, but with a new preface and supplement containing Ripley's Traité du mercure which occupies pp. 96-106." (Duveen 28). With a plate of Flamel's hieroglyphics et 8 wood engravings in-text. Ferguson 48 : "Most of copies I have examined have been imperfect, damaged, stained or dirty." This one is complete and in very good condition. In-4. Collation : 106 pp. Veau marbré, dos à nerfs orné, tranches dorées. (Reliure du XVIIIe.).

        The Most Excellent Hugo Grotius, His Three Books Treating of the Rights of War & Peace.

      London: for Thomas Basset and Ralph Smith,, 1682. In the First is handled, Whether any War be Just. In the Second is shewed, The Causes of War, both Just and Uujust [sic]. In the Third is declared, What in War is Lawful; that is, Unpunishable. With the Annotations digested into the Body of every Chapter. Quarto (310 x 203 mm). Contemporary calf, raised bands, frame to boards in blind, gilt roll to board edges, edges marbled. With the additional engraved vignette title page with portraits of Grotius and Evats by Thomas Cross facing the title page, the latter printed in black and red. Very light rubbing to extremities, professional repairs to spine ends and joints, lower corner of front board and board edges, small nick to p. 485, an excellent copy. First complete English edition of the Dutch philosopher, jurist, and theologian's legal masterpiece, De Jure Belli ac Pacis Libri Tres, first published in Paris in 1625. Considered to be the first expression of the "droit naturel", the first theorisation of "just war", and the foundation of modern international law, it had a profound influence on eighteenth-century political theorists such as Locke as well as on the arguments which supported the Glorious Revolution and the American Revolution. In his treatise Grotius puts forth his definitions of war and natural law (Book I), then argues for the identification of three just causes for war (Book II), and finally examines whether war and its combatants are bound by rules (Book III). "The questions which he put forward have come to be the basis of the ultimate view of law and society. This was the first attempt to lay down a principle of right, and a basis for society and government, outside Church or Scripture" (PMM). There had been one previous English translation prepared by Clement Barksdale (1654) which was considered by later translators a "small and worthless abridgment" (Nolan and Robertson p. 190).

      Koppenhagen/Copenhagen, Conrad Hartwig Neuhoff/ Joachim Schmedtgen, (1682)/1686/1689. Folio. All three volumes bound in one contemporary full mottled calf with five raised bands to richly gilt spine. Wear to hinges and corners, but fine and tight. Capitals worn and with small professional restorations. Internally occasional dampstaining, but oevrall very well preserved. Old catalogue entries taped in to inside of front board and front free end-paper with a re-enforcement to hinge and a tape-strip down the middle. A few leaves with small marginal tears, and one plate (the second in vol. II) with a closed tear. One further plate with a small tear and one leaf with a small marginal repair. 140; (4), 136, (4); (8), 132, (2) pp. Richly illustrated throughout, with ab. 150 large engravings (many double-full-page), in good impressions (which is very rare for the present work). The collation is quite confusing, as all the illustrations are part of the pagination, also the full-page plates; furthermore, the plates are only paginated on one side. The full collation follows below. Vol. I: Engraved title-leaf with hunting scenes, title-page, pp. 3-5: Dedication for King Christian V, pp. 6-16: Preface, pp. 17-140: the text, with illustrations, containing 114 engravings in the text (almost all ab. 1/3 page) and 10 double-page engraved plates (numbered on one side only).Vol. II: Engraved title-leaf (with different motiv than the first), title-page printed in red and black, pp. 1-2: Dedication to Prince Frederich, pp. 3-136: the text, with 15 double-page engraved plates (numbered on one side only), followed by two unnumbered leaves of index. Vol. III: Engraved title-leaf (differeing from the two others), title-page printed in red and black, three unnumbered leaves with: Dedication for King Christian V (five pages) and preface (1 page), the text is paginated pp. 3-132, with 14 double-page engraved plates (numbered on one side only), followed by one unnumbered leaf of index (Thesaurus mentions only 10 plates and no index). The exceedingly scarce first edition, first issue of all three parts of one of the most important hunting books ever printed, being one of the most original hunting books of all time, the most comprehensive German book of hunting from the 17th century, and the first book on hunting printed in Denmark. The magnificent and very richly illustrated work, paid for by the author himself, is one of the most interesting, curios and original books of its kind ever published. As opposed to virtually all other litterature on hunting from the period, Täntzer's great work is not based upon any other sources whatsoever. It is much more than the usual compilation of earlier material on the subject with some added obesrvations, which is normal for the period; it is that rare gem of a wholly original work on hunting. As such, it occupies an almost unique position, and as Lindner states is "unparallelled in hunting litterature" ("ohne Parallelle im Jagdlichen Schrifttum - Lindner, p. 92). Täntzer's sole purpose ist to disseminate his own empirically gathered knowledge according to his personally developed, original system. Every single word (apart from a few references tot he Bible) are his own, and as such, the work is totally unique. The work also contains an original list of technical hunting terms that is of great importance to the history of hunting terms. The greater second part of volume one constitutes a very amusing and comprehensive scientific survey of hunting animals, in which all hairy animals are originally described by Täntzer. "Wir haben mit diesen Kapitels des Täntzerschen Werkes eine wirklich reichhaltige, im Gegensatz zu anderen Partien recht lebendig geschriebene, oft von eigenen Erlebnissen und Feststellungen gewüzte originelle Jagdtierkunde vor uns." (Lindner, p. 94).The second part of the work is also of the greatest importance to hunting history, as it is here that Täntzer describes the tools and techniques used for hunting. Before Täntzer, these had only been very sparsely and ramdomly described, whereas Täntzer describes them extremely thoroughly and thus creates a whole new part of hunting litterature. As Lindner writes, Tänntzer has erected a monument for all later ages, "as no history of German hunting technique in the 17th century can be written without constantly taking into consideration Täntzer's testimony. ("...hat sich Täntzer ein Denkmal für alle Zeiten gesetzt, denn man kann keine Geschichte der deutschen Jagdtechnik im 17. Jahrhundert schreiben, ohne sich immer wieder af Täntzers Zeugnis zu berufen" - Lindner, p. 94). With an unparallelled thoroughness, Täntzer describes all kinds of nets and other materials and tools used for the hunting of game, predators, wolves, foxes, hares, rodents, etc., and he thorougly instructs on the use, application, measuring, manufacturing, and care of all these hunting materials. The same applies to traps for bears and all other imaginable hunting equipment. This unparalleled treatment of hunting equipment is of the greatest importance to the history of hunting. As stated by Lindner "we know of no other depition in European hunting litterature at any time throughout the ages, which is comparable to Täntzer's treatment in regard to detail and pecision." ("Wir kennen keine Abbildung in der Europäischen Jagdlitteratur jener Zeit, die sich hinsichtlich Ausführlichkeit und Genauigkeit mit Täntzers Darstellung messen kann, wobei die oft schwierigen technischen Vorgänge durch eine Fülle zur Erläuterung beigegebener Kupfterstiche dem Leser verständlich gemacht werden. An unseren Augen zieht das ganze Arsenal eines reich ausgestatteten fürstlichen Jägerhofes vorüber." - Lindner, p. 95).Part three consists partly in a thorough description of hunting dogs and partly (chapters 18 to 95) in a thorough description of Täntzer's self-developed and wholly original kind of "perforce"-hunting. The illustrations for the first part are mainly by Antony Mathysen and those for the two other parts are by Frederik Ernst Wedel. The impressions are of very varied quality and many copies have very weak prints. In fact, some of them were so weak, that in many copies Täntzer inserted stronger impressions covering the weaker ones. The first edition of the work - especially the first part - is of the utmost scarcity. The first part in the original 1682-priniting, printed in Copenhagen, was printed in small numbers and seems to have quickly sold out. In 1686 and 1789 respectively, parts two and three appeared, and in 1699 a second edition of part one appeared, printed in Germany, presumably to be sold with the first editions of the two latter parts. Thus, almost all known copies of the work have the first part in the inferior second edition. In the second edition, the text has been separated from the illustrations, and it does not measure up to the first edition in neither beauty nor whole. The second edition also has fewer illustrations, as some of them were omitted. In 1734 a new edition appeared, also printed in Germany, being the third edition of the first volume and second edition of volumes two and three. Although also very sought-after, this edition is inferior to the first, as it completely alters Täntzer's carefully chosen layout of the work and omits his personal commentaries that accompanied the first edition.
